MOC: Escape from Planet Monday
Posted 31 October 2009 - 01:21 PM
Yeah I know, it's mundane, welcome to Planet Monday.
Check out all the photos on MOCpages and Brickshelf (when public).
(some of you may have seen this on display at LEGO World already, I was unable to take pictures of it before LEGO World, because I finished this at 2:30 am the night before the event started ;))

This scene is living! You can really feel the movement everywhere when regarding the images. A perfect snapshot of city life.
The creation itself is most impressive. Multi-layered layouts are difficult to realize and need vast amounts of bricks. I can only guess how many bricks those are. I furthermore think that those uncountable little details add as much to piece count as well as to the perfection of the scene. The fence at the descent for example, using cones and bars with clip as pillar, immediately caught my eye. And there are many many more things yet to discover.
A pleasure to look at!

Gotta run now, but I'll check out all the details once I get back home... All I can say for now is that if this one weren't so mundane (riiiight) and/or had KimT's running around the place, it would make a brilliant Christmas diorama like the ones they sell in Department 56, especially with (and mostly because of) the subway below. Oh well. Guess I'm slowly starting to get that Christmas mood, just in time for it to wear off the night _before_ Christmas, as usual.
Anyway. Will be back, to rant more. For now - luv it!
Edit: Took out the "you're so brilliant I almost hate you" part. Figured not everyone would enjoy my idiotic sense of humour :P

Seriously great work man! The detailing and math behind thisis great, I'd love to see the under supports if you ever take it apart.

Astounding work on this, the train is just icing on the cake.

Also, that Mustang looks strangely familiar.

Tereglith, you're right haha, I hadn't noticed that.
Mine is a wee bit different, but diffinately greatly inspired by yours, awesome model dude!
I filled in your name in the blank I had for it on the MOCpage :)

Interesting look on the foundation as well. Not sure if I'd use monorail supports for keeping up that weight, but instead use the same technique used in the 7905 crane, which is extremely rugged and solid, without being heavy on the brick-supply.

This is one incredible modular display that you have over there, and I particularly adore how you integrate the subway together in this layout! Plain amazing!
Thanks for sharing this with us, and I am pleased to let you know it has been blogged in Classic-Town.net.
